Burst water main puts house at risk of flooding


There was a burst water main on Fairfax Avenue in Harrogate this morning (2 May 2012)

The fire service were called as the water was making its way down Fairfax Avenue and accumulating at the front of a property on Cawthorn Avenue. A pump was used to remove the water and protect the property from internal flooding, while the water leak was isolated.

Yorkshire Water are currently working on the burst pipe and highways are inspecting the road for damage.

A few properties may still be off, but Yorkshire Water are supplying bottled and hope to have everyone back on shortly.

  1. My son lives in Fairfax Avenue (no 69) and is disabled No one has been round with water for him apart from friends who managed to get some from the people working on the burst pipe. Surely Yorkshire Water should be going round households offering water
